GPs to be charged for sending text messages through email in 'short-sighted' DH move


Hunt has a fantastic game he plays every day, it is called 'who can we upset today! The sit around a tables and look at all the idiotic ideas imaginable, then pick the worst and promote it as a good idea! First they say patients must have choice ... patients like text reminders, patients must have GP access but the government fails to match demand with supply. meet. Patients choice re GP, that is another good one, they are still not telling us how GP's are supposed to work 24/7, no break, no family time etc. just as long as they meet patients demands. They promised the patients the earth but forgot that you cannot put a pint in a half pint pot! There is talk of training GP\s to better manage mental health problems ... so does the queue for this services include every MP is Westminster? Jeremy Hunt needs to realise that unfortunately GP's are just normal human beings trying to do a high valued job chained to the walls by idiots! Lunatics may be able to run the asylum but the government certainly cannot run the NHS!
